Research summary > [Click to expand]

There are two main themes to my work. The first focuses on developing measures of happiness subjective well-being that can be used in policy, particularly in the valuation of non-market goods and in 'joining up' the impact of changes in health, crime, the environment etc. The second considers ways in which the lessons from behavioural economics can be used to understand and change individual behaviour. This work is focussing on the important role that situational factors play in influencing our behaviour. For both areas, I am interested in how field experiments can be used to provide us with robust evidence for policy appraisal.
